Sheet Pan Salmon Dinner

Sheet Pan Salmon Dinner

I know I talk about school a lot - but that is my life. I am a teacher. I love being a teacher. But being a teacher on the first day of a new semester makes me want to vomit. In the 45 minutes before class started today I peed three times. I hope my students never find this. They don't need to know we get nervous too. I never know how to start. I am not a strict teacher and I usually base my classroom management around rapport. But this school I am at is very different, and I have mostly juniors with special education needs, so there has to be a lot more structure and a little more firmness. But it is hard to find the right balance. I am sure I will always be playing with this. Needless to say by the end of the day I am brain dead and I cannot even think. So easy dinners are 100% necessary. There is no other option. Hence this second sheet pan dinner. Perfection. 


Recipe

Let me pre-warn you, judge away, but I like overcooked salmon. I like my beef rare, but salmon cooooooked. I know it ruins it for everyone else, but I can't help it. So be warned...

  • 2 fillets salmon
  • 2 handfuls green beans 
  • 1 lb baby potatoes, cut into eights 
  • 2 tblsp fat
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp onion flakes
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary 
  1. Preheat the oven to 400
  2. This may seem silly, but put everything on the sheet pan and smother with the butter and spices, and then remove the green beans and salmon - set aside
  3. Roast the potatoes for 25 mins, then add the green beans, cook for another 10, then add the salmon and cook for 10-15 mins, depending on how you like your salmon cooked ;)
